Nutrition and healthy habits

Heading 1

At General Day Nursery, we promote healthy eating and this view is reflected in our varied menus. We are committed to providing freshly prepared, healthy and delicious meals which our children enjoy.

All menus are prepared on site by our in-house Cook, who freshly prepares two meals a day in our fully equipped on-site kitchen. All meals are included in the fees paid for by parents. Our menus are continually reviewed and we are more than happy to cater to different dietary requirements. We encourage comments and suggestions from Parents/Carers with meal ideas. 

All of our meals meet the government’s compulsory minimum nutritional requirements such as:

– A balanced diet with a lot of varied meals

– Plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables

– Minimal use of salt and sugar within our meals

– Plenty of food high in calcium and iron

– Provide a diverse menu, which facilitates to develop children’s tastes

In planning the menu we take account of individual dietary needs and aim to provide both a nutritious and varied range of meals and snacks.

The menu is updated termly. An example can be seen below

 

At nursery our children have access to fresh drinking water all day which in the older rooms they access this themselves , using a water dispenser and cups. This promotes independence and prepares the children for the next step in their lives
